X1 paused, keeps jumping to live TV

I have had my X1 box for many years now, and I recently noticed it started doing this strange behavior.  Let me try to explain it.  Let's say I am watching a show on live TV and I need to get up and do something, so I hit the Pause button.  Then when I come back a few minutes later, I hit Play to resume where I left off.  It will then continue playing from that point for a few minutes, but then for no apparent reason it suddenly jumps past all the buffered part and goes right to LIVE.  I can still rewind back to the point where I was watching before, but I have no idea why it jumps forward to LIVE in the first place.  So my question is this - has anyone else noticed this behavior, like it could be a firmware issue, or do you think my hard drive is going bad and I need a new box?

Re: X1 paused, keeps jumping to live TV

The same has happened to me a few times in the last few weeks.  My cable box was just replaced in March so I don't think it's the box that is the issue.
